I — FRANCE.—PARIS, TUESDAY.—The Moniteur pub- lishes in its official column the following paragraph :— The Emperor, renewing liis first decision, has re- mitted in fav ur of M. de Montak-m^ert the penalties definitely pronounced against him by the Cour Im;eria!e tjf Paris on tl.e 2ht of December, 1858. His Majesty has also remitted in favour of M. Douniol, Director of the Correspond ant, the imprisonment to w! iell he was seatenced by the judgment of the 24th of November." A la boiine'hev.re) It is done this time without sar- casm. We see the hand of the master himself, and iiot in his worst manner. This time at least the act oi grace, however meant, is free from the touches of those who are but too willing to wound," and it is Dot spoilt I v any of those inveterate jokers of whom it is said, "lIs out tant fait d'esprit qu'ils n'en ont plus." New it is probable that the redacfeur is the Emperor hin self, and it is done in a gentlemanly fashion. Vt hat a pity not to have waited till the appeal was heard, and M. de Montalembert definitely condemned! All would have been spared much trou- ble, and the Government the mortification of some- thing veiy like defeat. M. de Montalembert was Jiot, I believe, greatly alarmed at the prospect of three months' imprisonment, but it was not very cheering to sj end the rest of his life within the grasp of the Law on Public Security. The Mo/iifeur has taken time by the forelock; it has not waited, as people supposed it. would, for either the 1st or the 22d of January; and if the choice of the 28th of Decem- ber ccver an allusion to any great anniversary, I am unaware of the fact. It is a reasonable delay after the expiration of ti e time allowed for appealing to the Court of Cassation. Neither party made a move ra ihat dirccticn and so for the present ends •'this strange eventful history."—Times. The Prcsse contains a remarkable article on the trial of M de Montalembert, and the policy of the Government. It is remarkable because it discusses that policy \vi h a freedom which reminds us of other nml of better d: vs. It certainly expresses little sym- pathy with M. de Montalembert, but it is clear that it takes courage irom the decision of the Cour Imperiale, which so far modifies the sentence pro- nounced hv the Police-court. After touching cu his political antecedents, and contrasting him with other p^rfy leaders, who for years have abstained from politics, the writer continues :— "The Government evidently has nothing to g;.in in Ee<pg families of consideration, illustrious name", pro- test against it by a tacit renunciation of their habitual influence on pufc if ipinion. The co-operation of its own Ji:.ct agents 1., L Jt Sl1fficient. Strictly speaking, it may j exist thus, but it wants the relief, the radiance which ■would attract to it the voluntary adhesion and inde- peudence of the in lightened classes. The movement of opinion languish's, ideas spring uprare and impoverished; and if by chnr.cn some strong ones arise publi" upi- r; is wanting to them, because they are not und nor ,i,g bv the accepted, ncr »r»- they borne along by the b;\ f pub- lie favour. Hr^ the Government dom a1 .L could to remedy such a M'uation ? We demand permission to put the qnesticn without solving it, or rather, why not speak it—for this slurring over is more intelligible than an answe1. It i" evident that by keeping the press under a regime 1< ^iscretionarry, by giving the debates of the legislative corps through the twilights of official pub- licity, the Government has placed on every manifestation of public thought a drag which has at last produced an effect by no me ns anticipated. It feared tumult, it has no longer anything but silence. It desired to avoid the Texations of an impassioned Opposition, it has no longer any contradictors. It dreaded the turbulent outbursts of opinion, and it no longer hears its voice, and, should it "•vish to ask for counsel, it knows not to whom to address itsutf. Will not that unanimity at last appear to it sus- pected ? Will it not end by understandirg that the etrong and decided voice of a loyal adversary is far better to listen to and to consult than the inarticulate whis- perings of an official advocate pleading without contradic- tion or opposition ? Why I speak in a bated tone, ss if you were in a sick chamber ? Who is s-Ick here? Is it the country ? Why, t^e coun- trv has never worked more and better. Is it the Government ? But the Government has really nothing to fear but the execss of its own force and the absence of serious discussion. It has m',de war, and having carried it on with energy it has known how to conclude it in time. Its situation in Europe is exc<ot.. At home it has done for industry, f. r agriculture, and for the labouring cl isst s, as much, if not more, than any other Government. Why, then, should it dread discussion ? Does it believe that it could not support it? That, in. deed, would ho too much modesty. If the Government had adversaries it would have partisans, if it had enemies it would have fi i -nds. At present, if we only consulted appearances, it would setm that everybody is of the same cpicion not O!,ií as regards its principle but its acts. Does it really t»ke this strange unanimity as serious? How many absurd reports are circulated and fix>.d in public opinion which cannot be contradicted because tiiey cannot be pul'.isbed ? We wou'd willingly btlbve, since it is so assorted, that at the commencement all ihese precautions were necessary we do not fear to cL assert that at preset.t they are more injurious than useful. The want of fr c discussion leaves in au equivoc .t twi- light intentions, plarsi and measures, which, if attacked =.nd defended in broad daylight, without any trammels or restrictions, would act on public opinion and would bring home conviction more certainly than the inter- minable apot !K o.=os of the official journals. For our part, we do n t complain of the Minister of the Interior. He handles wit:- as much measure and skill as possible a power which in other hands might be formidable we merely observe that such a power should belong only to the law and 'he msus'racy, its notunl interpreter. As Jong as the Government docs not fee! itself sufficiently strong to relinquish this discretionary power over the press, it will want a decisive sanction which nothing can Eupply. As ha* as France docs not enjoy a positive liberty of within the limits prescribed by law, it cannot count on the active support of the enlightened classes—of that political middle chss which enJoys so considerable a position in France, and which, possessing both i-apital and instruction, has soma right to protend 'o political inflo- nce." AMERICA—In the Senate, on the Ifith, Mr. j Clingman, (North Carolina), attempted to bring up his resolution to abrogate the Clayton-Buivver Treaty. Mr. Mason, (Virginia),_ chairman of the Committee on Foreign was in favour of laying it on the table. Its effoct would be to make an issue with the President. Mr. Clingman insisted that, from the President's two messages, it appeared that their pro- gress had been backward in Central America for the last year, and that Great Britain was getting stronger every day under this treaty that it ought to be put out of the way, and then, when ocsasion offered, he might act in th-it region. As they had failed n hitherto, according to the President, to get a good treaty either from Great Britain or Nicaragua,—what ground was there to hope that these parties would between themselves make smh a treaty as would pro- tect United States' interests? Messrs. Foot and Shiel,is and of hers expressed their sentiments, when the Senate reLlseJ to take up the subject—by veas, 22; nays, 2S.
INDIA AND CHINA. "CALCUTTA, NOV. 23.—My letter this mail must be a short one. India is sutfering from one of those soasms of ciulness, which in hluglaml sometimes fol- lows the rising of Parliament. Civil action has been iuterrujited all through the mutinies, and military action is nearly over. The papers are iulfcd with re- ports of the festivities winch followed the icadingot the Proclamation, and the empire is as flat as an English country town. All over India the l'roclama tion has been received with a tame uniformity of appiova,, and all classes are preparing loyal addresses to her Majesty. They are, without aa exception, decorous and formal, being usually drawn up by English bar- risters, and signed by as many natives as happen to see them. Not that they are not genuine. As far as I can learn, all classes of the population most de- cidedly approve the change but address-writing is not the Asiatic way of expressing delight, and iu adopting an English fashion the natives lose their originality. The campaign languishes, for the enemy are beaten. Tort alter fort is surrendered or cap- tured, and the Begum is the only leader of importance Y left in Oude. Mithowlee was evacuated on the 8th of November, after a short bombardment; and Amethie, the strongest place in Oude, on the follow- ing day. The latter was menaced by Sir Hope Grant, and great resistance expected. The Rajah is a brave man, and was known to have some 8,000 troops and about 30 pieces of artillery. His fort is two miles round, defended by an almost impassable J'ungle, and provisioned for some mouths. The Rajah, lowever, had no heart for the contest, and was be- sides, like all the rebel leaders, eaten up, bullied, and insultel by his Sepoys. The Queen's amnesty pro- mised him life, the civil authorities added some con- solatory phrase about his estates, and he surrendered himself. His followers dispersed, and hundreds will accept the amnesty. Iudeed, I an told Southern Oude has made up its mind, and the people are coming in daily. Every man on surrendering his yms receives a written pass whish entitle# him to return to his village and live in peace till called on by civil authority. Of course he will not be called on unless he is mischievous, and a Hindostauee will never stir till he has got arms. In Bhojrore the same process is going on. Umur Singh has been captured some of his followers are coming in, and the remainder are wandering among the hills round Rhotas, without leader, place, or hope. Between Calcutta and Delhi the only rebel force left, more im- portant than a gang of dacoits, is that which obeys, or disobeys, according to the humour of the hour, the orders of the Begum. This force is in a trap with Colonel Troup on one side, Brigadier Rowcroft Oil the other, the Gogra in front, and the Nepaulese Terai behind. Tiley must yield or make a rush to pass Colonel Troup, and make for Rohilcund. They cannot raise that province again, and whatever th- y do are rather a nuisance than a serious danger. Tantia Topee, who has crossed the Nerbudda, and by the last accounts reached the Taptce with his cavalry, is far more formidable. The audacious dash by which he contrived to pass all the four field forces watching for him and cross the Nerbudda, is really most credi'able to his generalship. He has, however, none but mounted followers, and we have faced and conquered Mahratta leaders as able and ten times as powerful in the same region. The only real danger lies in the possibility of his reaching the neighbourhood of Poonah. The whole of that territory is dis- affected. and the Brahmins, deprived of all influence, and menaced by the Eoam Commission in their possessions, are ready to follow anybody who promise them even au hour of triumph". I should consider the revolt, as a national or military movement, finally at an end but for our fatal expe- rience of native ignorance. Nobody can tell at any given moment what any leader, however contemptible, or any class, however thoroughly beaten, may think itself competent to do. Eighteen men rose on us in Nagpore. The men in Chittagong had not a chauce even of life, and literally did not know in what corner of the empire they were stationed. The Sepoys at Mooitan must have been perfectly aware that escape was impossible, yet all these rose, and it is this igno- rance which perpetuates disorder. Any other race on e rth, with its army annihilated, its fighting classes disarmed, aud its leaders hung, would at all events postpone further effort but the man who from cer- tain given facts predicts the action of an Asiatic, is i sure to be wrong. Further war, however, seems im- possible. Even Indian ignorance cannot produce guns out of nothing, or an army out of discontented priests, and we have, I hope, at last only to contend with disorganisation. That may last some mouths, especially in Bundelcund, where a population, always hostile, has been exasperated by over taxation. Gradually even this will settle down, and this year should see the final termination of the Indian revolt. The only fact of the fortnight, beyond the surrender of Amethie, is the issue of a new interest Order. The interest on "Company's paper," the Tndian debt may henceforward be drawn in England, holders receiving not, a specified sum in cash, but bills for the number of rupees to which they would be entitled in Calcutta. The Order was so badly worded that the brokers at first imagined transfer in" England was disallowed. A second notification from the Treasury, however, removed the difficulty, and some large sums will be sent home. The price has not, however, risen so rapidly as expected, Company's Five per Cents, remaining at o j discount. I enclose both Orders.—Times Correspondent. CHINA.—Lord Elgin was to proceed up the Yang- tsze-Kiang on the Sth inst. The vessels of war that were to accompany his Lordship, are her Majesty's steamers Retribution, Furious, and Cruiser, and the gun-boats Love and Dore. It is said that it is his Lordship's intention to go up to Hankow, the furthest of the ports on the river to be opened to foreign trade. We are not here aware what the immediate object of the expedition is, but we would feign look forward to a beneficial result from it. As the expedition will have to pass Nankin, and other cities held by the rebels, it becomes a question who. ther its progress will be interfered with. It wa expected that the expedition would be absent at least three weeks. Latterly it has been reported that the lebels from Nankin have been committing Sreat destruction among the places in that neighbourhood. The United States' steamer Powhuttan arrived at Woosung, brought dates from Nagasaki to the 31st ult. There is apparently nothing important in the news. The British schooner Yindex was entered at Nagasaki after permission of the authorities had been obtained under the provisions of Sir James Stirling's treaty. At Canton matters, so far as trale is con- cerned, have improved considerably since the date of cur last. Several vessels have left with new teas, and others are on the point of getting away. For im- ports also the demand is increasing. The British Consul Las again resumed his post there.—Times.
OPERATIONS IN OUDE. EVACUATION" uF SHUNIvEItPORE. (FROM "THE TDlES" SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT.) HEAD-QUARTERS, CAMP, NEAR SHUNKERPORE, Nov. 17.—By the Bombay mail of the 21th of No- vember, I forwarded a narrative of operations up to the 14th of the month, to which I now send a supplement up to this date by the mail from Calcutta. It must be understood that I do not pretend to speak of events in other pa; ts of India, and that Ideal with matters of which generally I have some personal cognizance. Of affairs which take place in other parts of India, and even of Oude, fuller details are furnished by eyewitnesses than I can possibly procure, and to my colleagues must be left the task of collecting them. On the morning of the 14t,h of November, Lord Clyde marched from his camp at KUhwuoore, beyond Amethee, towards Snunkerpore, the strong- hold of Bainic Madhoo— the correct orthography, at last, of this chieftain's name. Of the posiiiou aud strength of the enemy we had heard the most lormi- damo accounts. There was, however, no certain, nor, as it appeared, trustworthy information regarding the forts they occupied, or their means of resistance. It was a matter of speculation whether Bainic Madhoo would fight or submit but his character gave the combatants reason to believe that its would stand his ground. On the evening of the 13th, Major Barrow, the political agent at head-quarters, or, more properly speaking, the Financial Commissioner, sent the fol- lowing letter from our camp at Ojdepors to the rebel chief:— "The Commander-in-Chief having received the fullest powers from the Governor-General to deal with all insur. gents, either by force of arms or treaty, as may se m to his Excellency to be right according to the offences or claims to consideration of each individual, sends the pro- clamation of the Queen of Great Britain to Ranah Bainie Madhoo. The R tnah is informed that under the terms of that Proclamation his life is secured on due submission being made. The Governor-General is not disposed to deal harshly but Bainie .Madhoo must r. e >l!ect that lie has Ion. been a r' b-1 in arms. and hut very recently attacked Ilur Majesty's troops. lie must therefore make the fullest submissive surrender of his forts and cannon, and come out at the head of his Sepoys and armed fol- lowers, and with them lay down his arms in the presence of Her Majesty's troops. The Sepoys and aruaed followers will then be allowed to go to their homes without moles- tation, each of the former reee-ivrig a certificate fro:n the Coinnuastoner. When complete surrender and submis- sion has been made, Bainic Madhoo will not h ive causr to dlstrust the generosity and clemency of the Governor- General, and even his claims on account of estates lie may consider himself wrongly deprived of may be heard uut, m toe meantime, before submission is made, and the arms of the Ranah, his Sepoys, and followers publicly aid down,no treating U allowed by the Governor-General. The Uommanuer-m-LIiicf warns Baiuit* Mart'ioo lose no time. Ilis columns are el.aing round the Ranah, and any delay on Bainie Madhou'i part will deprive him of the benefit of the Qieen's mercy, and reader it impossible for the Governor-General to exuviae generosity in his behalf. The fate of himself, of his family, and of Iii, followers is in his own hands." Early on the 15 th our troops marched to their present callp at Kaishwapore or Kishwapore, about three miles from the outer ditch of the jungle of Shuiikerpore. The Commander-in-Chief, however, was precluded from an immediate advance on the place, because lie had not received any reply to his letter. There was a probability that it had not been received, and the instructions of his Excellency were most positive that no attack should be made on any of the forts till it had been ascertained that the chief who owned it had received a copy of the Queen's proclamation. The place was reconnoitred, and found to be less formidable than report had made it, so far as could be judged from the position of the works discernible through the woods and jungle. Our camp was pitched at a line nearly parallel to the side of the jungle, at a distance of two and a half or two and three quarter miles from the outer ditch. Sir Hope Grant's column, encamped three or four I miles distant, lay at an angle to our right flank, so as to invest the north-easteru face. The south was covered by a jungle, and ou the welt it was hoped that Brigadier Evelegh's force moving from Simree would have arrived within such a distance of the works as would have enabled them to co-operate with us; but, as communications were very difficult, and no report had been received from that officer, the Com- mander-in-Chief was ignorant of his position. It was long after midday ere our tents were all pitched our baggage continued to block up the road long after nightfall. Strong pickets of cavalry and guns were thrown out from both camps, which at night were strength- ened by infantry. Lord Clyde, who is most watchful that the important duty of placing pickets and sen- tries is properly performed, rode ont and visited the front of our position, a3 he always does when we are in front of an enemy. At Amethee he was obliged to alter the disposition of the men and of the sentries by his own word of mouth, and here too he met with an officer who professed himself ignorant of the meaning of the word vedette." At night a messen- ger came in from Shuiikerpore with the following letter from Bainie Madhoo:—- "I have received your Excellency's purwannah, and with it the proclamation. I beg to say that I was for- merly Caboolintdar of this eilaga, and am still in pos- session of the 3am", and if the Government will continue the* settlement with me I will turn out my father, Bainie Madhoo. lie is on the part of Birjies Kuddr, but I am loyal to the British Government, and I do not wish to be ruined for my father's sake." This was an ingenious composition, reminding one of the old times in Scotland, when each family had a representative in the ranks of the claimants to the Crown. It, was generally believed to be the compo- sition of Bainic Madhoo in person. At the same time the latter sent a letter to the Rajah of Tiloi, who had come into our camp in answer to a recom- mendation that he should submit, iu which he took high ground, and told the Rajah that one King was all he could serve, and that he had given his fealty to Birjies Ivuddr. We heard that a large number of Sepoys, varying, according to different accounts, from 600 to 1,500, had gone off from the enemy, and were making their way to Maniekpore, on the Ganges, between Delamow and the bridge across from Allahabad. S'ill there were some of our spies who insisted that Bainie Madhoo had 40.000 men and 40 guns inside the work. Precautions were taken to prevent the enemy breaking through our lines. The pickets were warned to be on the alert. The enemy weresaid to have 2,000 horse. Every- thing looked like fighting. Night came; and all, except those who were in advance of the line in tents, u h-ctiredtorest. It was bright moonlight, but the I moon set early. About two o'clock in the morning I was awakened by the noise of horses in the street of our canvas city. I turned out and found Captain F!ood waiting for orders to carry across country from the Chief of the Staff to Sir Hope Grant. In"- tclligencc had been received that the enemy after the moon had disappeared, issued from the forts and | were evacuating the pLce in all haste. The country in our front was intersected with water cuts, covered with crops, wood, and jungle. So information as to the exact route of the enemy could be had, and in fact, it was possible the whole story might be' untrue. Lord Clyde, light in hand, flitted across the street, carrying his orders with his own hand to his Aide-de-Camp, Captain Dormer. It was past three o'clock ere the Aide-de-Camp of the Chief of the Statf started with an escort of a few Sowars to carry orders to Sir Hope Grant to proceed at once.in pur- suit of the enemy. It was pitch dark, and the direction was only to he had from the stars. So difficult was the ground that oue of the horses of the escort broke its neck. So it was that it was past four o'clock ere the column of Sir Hope Grant was reached, and the order given to that gallant and in- defatigable otTIcer. All the troops were turned out. and the column was in readiness to march by daylight,, directing its advance upon Roy Bareilly. During the night the pickets had heard men moving, the the night the pickets had heard men moving, the groaning of camels, and the noise of voices close to the fot; but they had no orders to act, and, indeed, it is difficult to say what they could have done if they na'J* At daybreak it was evident that Bainie Madhoo had fled, and that his boasted stronghold had been descried without a shot. The tracks of wheels along toe outside of the work showed that he had succeeded in carrying off some at, least of his guns, ana that he had taken a long sweep to the west of Sir Hope Grant's extreme right picket, and then marched oft towards Roy Bareilly. An advance was ordered on the brts. The BeeJoehcs entered, and found it quite empty, the bastions unarmed, the jungles desolate. They were at once relieved by a wing of her Majesty's 5th Fusileers, under Lieutenant Colonel Milman. Colonel Harness and the engineer I '1] ill andarttiicryofEcei-s rode across to fhe place, and Lord Clyde, after a hasty visit, rode off to overtake Sir Hope Grant's column, in order that he might give him directions as to the pursuit. Some of the rebels, we heard, had gone southwards through the jungles towards the Ganges, but the main body, under Bainie, had obviously fled towards the Goomtee northwards. Early in the morning, about half an hour after daybreak, I approached the outer works of the fort, which consisted of a very deep, but narrow ditch, and a low parapet of irregular trace, inside which nothing could be seen but dense jungle. There was no entrance visible till we had ridden southwards about two miles. The country was like that already described. Several hamlets and villages quite de- serted lay outside the ditch; only cats and dogs inhabited the streets. In one there was a small and very handsome Hindoo temple, covered outside with hideous idols. All these villages offered the greatest facilities for resistance in the hands of a determined enemy, and could only have been cleared in such a case by very hard fighting or severe vertical fire. Through one of those villages.lay the road to the outer fort. AJiastiou of earth towered above it" but the flanking fire was iiidiiferently directed. The gateway was of bambo, and opened upon a ramp across the ditch to a. strong mud wall, winding over a tortuous street, acecss through which into the interior was obtained by a wooden gate, of no strength. Inside, the place was somewhat like Amethee, only that the central residence was not so fine. An old Brahmin, very sick, was the sole human being to be found, but a must" elephant—a male suffering from a temporary derangement, owing to a disappointment in some love n riffair—was tied by chains in the courtyard, guu bul- locks wandered about, and doolies, tents, a spring van, litters, and various stores, lumbered the enclo- sures, which were full also of bedsteads, and a few articles of furniture. Only a few old matchlocks could he found after the minutest search, and, as if in moekerv, four very small brass guns, mere children's playthings, were laid out in a row in front of one of the verandahs. In the women's apartments some miserable daubs left upon the walls showed that those who lived there must have been vile and depraved indeed. Idols abounded in the rooms: some bad engravings, an Oriental dream of the Duke of Wel- lington, and embossed drawings of wild beasts hung up in (he divan, in wiiicli were also glass chandeliers, covered with linen bags, as it the season was oyer." In the rooms around the courts immense quantities of ghee, nuts, wheat, and corn were found also a labo- ratory for making powder, and about 9,0001b. of that article of native manufacture. I am beginning to believe that most of the good guns of the forts in Oude were sent into Lucknow, or were captured by Havelock and olhers in the earlier fights. It is eer- tain Bainie Madhoo has got only nine with him, aud they are all probably less than six-pounders. We have heard of one hrge gun which has not yet been discovered, and the carriages of two, in tolerable con- dition, we-e fouud this afternoon. There are three other forts much more complete inside the work which must be described hereafter. All are to be destroyed, with the exception of one which is to be turned into a native police thanuah. Towards midday Lord Clyde returned after a hot ride of ten miles, in I addition to his early march from Sir Hope Grant, whose column reached Rey Bareilly in the afternoon. Bainie Madhoo had a long start of him, and it seems now established that we never can overtake natives fairly on t he run. A part of the Jugdespore force marched 200 miles in five days, and yet did little good. General Michell's infantry marched 32 miles in one day after lantia Topee, and fialed to overtake him. I fear that General Grunt and Brigadier Eveleigh will not be more successful. According to the latest accounts, Bainie Madhoo was at Poorye, and if he crossed the Goomtee would, in all likelihood, cros the Gogra at Byrainghaut and join the insurgents in Burnech. Colonel Taylor, Iler Majesty's 79t.h, now second-class Brigadier, marched yesterday morning towards Fyzabad with a troop of Royal Horse Artillery, Middletous Battery Royal Artillery, one company Royal Engineers, Delhi Pio- neers, 1st Punjab Cavalry, Her Majesty s 79th Regiment, 1st Sikh Infantry. The bulk of the heavy material remains with Head-quarters Canap, which is now left here with only a wing of Her Majesty's 5th, about 300 of Her Majesty's 32nd, and about 200 of the 6th Dragoon Guards or Carbineers. Thus I have given yon, without comment, a dry narrative of the actual events which have occurred here since the despatch of my last letter reserving some matter for my next letter, which will probably be more interesting. As the talookdars were slow in coming in, the Com- missioner issued a circular to them, in which he stated that if they did not make submission within a short period, he would send for the Rajah of Rupporthullah, and his Sikhs, and would make over their estates to his use. This little stroke of diplo- macy has been attended with the best results, but as yet the Sepoys hold aloof. They do not believe the proclamation or the amnesty. The talookdars are, however, coming in. Some of Bainic Madhoo's estates have been already awarded to men who have served the Government. Tliannahs and collcctorates have been established all along our line of march, and zemi-.idars have been placed there, with their match- lockmen, till we can spare police to take their place As soon as that is the case the zemindary levies will be deprived of their matchlocks, and the country will be disarmed.
OUR NATIONAL DEFENCES. (From the There seems to he one subject on which no amount of discussion can satisfy or inform the public mind. It is not for want of time, as the topic has been ventilated these ten years; or for want of argument, as every public speaker takes it up to a certainty, and it has been handled at several country meetings very lately. Neither can it be for want of interest, as it is about the most im- portant question which a country could entertain. Not- d withstanding, ho'vever, a!! these considerations, it seems impossible to ascertain whether the military and naval forces are or are not on a footing sufficient to guarantee our security; in other words, whether the condition (if our National Defence is or is not such as the case really demands. To increase the obscurity pervading the sub- ject, we cannot resolve it into any question of party or profession. If all the Liberals took one view and ail the Conservatives another if all naval and militatymen were on this side, and all civilians on that, then" e might ascribe the divergence of opinion to difference.s of another character; but such is not the fact. Neither sailors nor soldiers, neither Whigs nor Tories, are ncces- saiily of one mind in the matter. In one quarter only is there any uniformity of conclusion, and that is on the Continent of Eu:ope, w here it seems to be generally le- lieved, both by our friends and our foes, that we have permitted our forces to fall below the standard of security and credit, and that, as M. de Montalembert phrased it, we have lost our reputation for national power. On behalf of the alarmists this much, beyond all doubt, can be substantiated,—that when the cry was raised it was based on reality. Its original foundation was per- fectly sound. When the great Duke gave utterance to his sentiments on the subject some ten years ago it was literally true that we were without the means of resisting any rapid attack. We had no home squadrons, no coast defences, no militia, amd no regular force fit to be called an army within the hounds of these islands. Our artil- lery was so weak that we could not have sent three bat- teries into the field our soldiers were still armed with weapons which had been r/jected in the services of other nation's; nor had we provided any compensation for pau- city of numbers in scientific economy of strength or resources. All this has now been established as a fact, and the question therefore turns entirely on the measures which have been adopted during the last ten years to retrieve our position and restore our security. We must say that from this point of view we find it very difficult to believe that our efforts can have been so abortive or fruitless as many persons still represent. There has been no Government since 1848 which has not had this subject forced upon its notice, either by agitation at home or convulsions abroad nor has there been any Administration which has not addressed its energies towards the improvement of our position. That there should be no result after all these efforts appears incredible. Besides the warnings which have kept the public mind incessantly on the alert, we have gone through the ordeal of a great European war, which not only compelled us to look well to our defences, but brought out all the weak points of our system by the test of trial. It was certainly shown by this test that many of our departments were in a most imp; rfect con- dition, and ill calculate j for the strain of actual strife; but the lesson brought its mora!, and we are now so much the wiser. As to pure military reputation, we can hardly have been losers by the fields of Inkermann and Balaklava nor is the history of the Bengal Mutinies likely to have lowered our fame in the eyes of Europe. We presume, therefore, that the misgivings still existing must rest on the assumption that the standard of our es- tablishments remains yet bolow that which the establish- ments of other great Powers would naturally suggest; that we possess, in short, no military force competent to measure itself against the force of other States, although the Channel can no longer be held against the rival navies by a British fleet, or, at least, not by such a fleet as we maint-un. Perhaps it is impossible to decide a question which turns so essentially on comparisons, but we cannot well see how the development which we have recently given to our strength can admit of this depreciation. Not to speak of the previous augmentations made year by year in various departments, we have during the last twelve ) months increased), he regular army by two entire legiments of Uorse and 28 complete battalions of Foot. Besides this, we have doubled the stiength of our Artillery, and ) largely augmented that of our Marines. If we add to tnese items the increase ordered on the regimental estab- lishments generally, it certainly cannot be doubted that we are stronger than we were by at least 50,000 excellent soldiers. True it is that about 60,000 troops are now employed in India, over and above the numbers of those formerly sta- tioned in that country but to compensate for thia diversion we have called out the Militia, and have at this moment several regiments embodied which for discipline and efficiency are perfectly qualified to raiik with the best battalions of the Line. Such being the case as re- gards numerical strength, let us see what has been done as regards military science. We will not say much about the Staff, for the reforms instituted in that depart- ment can hardly be bearing much fruit at present, but, at any rate, they have been set on foot. We have, however, opened the scientific corps to public competi- tion, and raised the standard of professional attainments among officers generally. To the private soldier we have given improved equipments, improved weapons, aud im- proved drill. We need no longer hear with dismay of the proficiency iu musketry practice displayed by Conti- nental armies, nor need we tear that British courage might be overborne by sharpshooting. Day after day onr military intelligence describes the instruction of the troops in riflo practice, and the cold weather, we see, is made an opportunity of exercising them in country marches. To give reality and substance to all these re- forms we have now three or four standing camps, where Regulars and Militia are brigaded together by thousands, and where all arms of the service may be trained in ma- nea ivres representing thos? of actual war. In the face of these facts—and facts they notoriously are-we cannot easily bring ourselves to believe that we are quite so powerless as certain people think us. We suspect that foreigners have learnt to disparage us from our own lips, and that they have borrowed, our national grumblings in building up their conclusions. Perhaps the inveterate English habit of discontent is at the bottom of our alarms. It is a matter of course in this country that some party, and probably a large one, should take a satisfaction in proving that we are all going to the dogs. The custom has its advantages, no doubt, since, except for such a stimulus, we should never get the necessary reforms in any department of the State but it may very likely lead those who, in surveying us from without, take us too rigorously at our own estimate. It would not be in the least degree difficult for any absolute Government to make such a collection of our public writings and public speeches as would (epreseut England, by the description of Englishmen themselves, as on the high road to national ruin. A good deal of this dispa- ragement has been visited upon our naval and military systems, and it has probably led to more sweeping con- clusions than the foundation would bear. Neither our army nor our navy could ever be put upon such a footing as would satisfy every professional theorist and every political agitator. There would always be somebody to institute invidious comparisons, and to draw a disagree- able moral. The whole question, as we cannot deny, is shrouded in perhaps unavoidable obscurity but, if we L ok at the length of our warning, the magnitude of our expenditure, aud the visible results in the state of things* around us, it will be very hard to believe that the answer, if it could be decisively given, would leave us with much ground for alarm.

The Jewish ciminuni'.ies in Prussia, who had applied to the Government to interfere in the Mortara affair, have just received a reply in the negative. MUHDlm IN EpPING FOREsT.-On Tuesday Mr. C. C. Lewis, coroner for the district, and the jury previously empanneled to inquire into the deaths of a woman and child whose lifeless remains were found in a pool in Ep- ping Forest (having both been, as it now turns out, barbarously murdered), reassembled for the third time at the Wake's Arms, -New-road, Epping Forest. A good deal of evidence was given, but it was not of a positive character, and did not lead to the indentification of the bodies. The coroner gave his opinion that a murder had been committed, and the jury returned a verdict, That the deceased were wilfully murdered by some person or persons uaknown;" and at the same time, in con- junction with the coroner, they expressed their high gratification at the laudable exertions made by the police authorities ill endeavouring to unravel this mys- terious affair.
